Telnet Tools and Settings

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

Telnet Server tools and settings determine how Telnet Server handles auditing, authentication, idle session time-out, and other remote command console session options. Usually, you do not need to configure Telnet Server options to connect a Telnet client to a Telnet server running Windows: the default Telnet Server options are compatible with most Telnet clients. However many settings are configurable to meet the needs of your organization.
